Home Movies

I dug out my old camcorder.  I use to make home movies twice a year of all of the happenings here at the farm.  I haven't made movies in several years.  I really enjoyed doing that and don't know why I stopped.  I am going to turn my new seldom used computer (now 2 years old) into my production studio.  I have ordered new movie making software since our Sassy Alice chewed up one of the disks that went with my Pinnacle Studio.  It wouldn't work on my Windows 7 any way so it's a good excuse for new software and a new brand; this time I'm going with Sony Vegas Studio Platinum 11 before I upgrade my Pinnacle to Avid.  A girl can never have too much software :))

My Little Old House...

Those that know me or follow my work know that I love my Little Old House that Poppa built for me several years ago using old wood, door, windows, cabinets and mantel, circa 1900.  This old house stores my dolls, supplies and a few antiques.  It's my playhouse that I never had when I was a child...well, I'm still a child...just a little older.

Little Old House
Right next to my Little Old House is my Mold Building.  It is full to the brim with porcelain doll and ceramic molds.  Right behind my Little Old House is a gigantic dead Oak tree that is not on our property.  On Monday of last week a limb fell from the dead tree and put a sizeable dent in the roof of my Mold building.  This past Monday another limb fell and demolished my mold building.

Mold Building
The tree man is coming Saturday to give us an estimate to remove the dead tree. We do have permission from the property owner to take it down.  It will be 3-4 weeks before the tree man can get to us because he is so far behind.  Last summer's drought took a toll on trees and everything.  As for now, I need things in my Little Old House but I'm not taking a chance on another falling limb.....and praying nothing falls on my sweet Little Old House.
